ICASO: An HIV Undetectable Status Means HIV Cannot be Transmitted

“A community brief on U=U (Undetectable = Untransmissible) drafted by ICASO based out of Toronto, Canada in partnership with several Canadian organizations has been launched at the annual Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) conference currently being held in Canberra, Australia.”

“U=U beaks down the sero-divide which has been so detrimental for so many years across or communities” says Darryl O’Donnell from the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations. “It’s time the world took notice about the new facts of what it means to be living with HIV in 2017” says Cipri Martinez, President of the National Association of People Living with HIV Australia. “A person living with HIV who has an undetectable viral load because they are on HIV treatment cannot pass on the virus. Full Stop.” Read the full brief at ICASO.org
